Copa Brasil: Minas first finalist, joined by a super Renata Campinas who eliminated Sada Cruzeiro!

2 min read

Predictions respected: Fiat/Gerdau/Minas is the first finalist of the 2022 Copa Brasil. This Thursday, at Ginásio Galegão, in Blumenau, the current leaders of Superliga defeat Vedacit Guarulhos (at their first historical F4!) by 3-1, partially 25:19, 25:12, 21:25 and 25:22. Unbeaten since October 2021, the players around Nery Tambeiro dominated the rivals from the middle of the first set, that was balanced until the 16th point, when Minas started to take advantage of the counterattacks, above all with their top scorer, Leandro Vissotto, who ended the game with 22 points, 1 ace and 57% in attack.

On the other semifinal, in a really amazing game with a lot of emotions, uncertain from start to finish, with a confused refereeing, discussions, complaint and red cards, Vôlei Renata, despite the heavy absence of Lucão and with the opposite Evandro in half service (initially fielded in the starting six, but then replaced by the young Nasser), defeat the super favorite Sada Cruzeiro by 2-3 (21:25, 25:27, 27:25, 27:25, 13:15) to take their ticket to the great final of the competition.
To punish the very foul
coach Filipe’s side (43 total errors, even 10 in the tie-break!) was the young spiker Adriano Xavier Cavalcante (28 points and 60% in attack) well supported by the expert Bruno Temponi (19 points and 47% in attack) which drove the imprecise block of Sada Cruzeiro crazy (9 vs. 15 in favor of the winners) with a series of lobs.

Neither Minas nor Vôlei Renata have won the Copa Brasil so far in club history!
Minas reaches its third final, the second in a row but, in both occasions, the executioner was Sada Cruzeiro, six-time champion of the competition (2014, 2016, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 editions).
